One of my criticisms of other Korean places I like is sometimes the building and furniture just don't have a 'nice place to eat out' feel. Despite really liking our more local place in Portsmouth we will travel a little way to come here as not only is the food good, the atmosphere is comfortable and the interiors look well... More

First time visiting Korean Grill but really like korean BBQ so thought I would try out with one friends. There was only 1 waiter and the restaurant was FREEZING cold, almost antarctic. I hate when restaurants and shops alter the temperature to suit the staff, rather than the customers and this was probably the case. Did not speak up about... More

Korean! That sounds like fun, so as a group of 15 we turned up at the restaurant unannounced, given the size of our party we thought we should ask if they could accommodate us in the first instance, to be polite as one does, given the restaurant had at least 25 covers (as a guess) we couldn’t see it being...

There was a large group of us, so fully accept not the easiest to manage but communication goes a long way. We'd have been happy treated as 2 separate bookings but instead they struggled. Nearly Half the menu was off and when food eventually came there was always a seasoning of excuses, eg we only have one chef at the... More

Based on the reviews below, I had high expectations. Unfortunately those expectations were not met. The food was bland and overpriced, certainly not similar to authentic Korean, which was the biggest disappointment. The service was mediocre. We were not finished with our meal but the bill was brought to the table. Upon paying the waitress asked for a tip, and... More

We enjoyed our meal here. I don't know whether it was an authentic Korean BBQ or not, but what we had was good. The problem was we were looking for more - there were no sweets, coffee or teas to round things off. No starters either, you eat everything together. If that's what you want, then fine, and if you...

I travelled to Korea for 4 times and I've been craving for authentic Korean food since coming to UK. I passed by the place some times but it was closed for renovating. Last week I saw a flyer about the reopening sales and came there for lunch. The restaurant is quite nice and cosy with grill on the table, very... More

This place been closed for sometime due to fire. Now re-opened with nicer dishes, maybe a change of chef? The place is newly renovated. Very nice and cosy. We just had a snacky meal but will probably come back for more of their dishes.
